AMD’s 690G/V Series Chipset Preview and BenchmarksWed, Feb 28, 2007 - 12:00 AM
Sisoft; Sandra 2007:
SiSoftware, founded in 1995, is one of the leading providers of computer analysis, diagnostic and benchmarking software. The flagship product, known as “SANDRA”, was launched in 1997 and has become one of the most widely used products in its field. SANDRA is used by almost 400 world-wide IT publications, magazines, review sites to analyze the performance of today?s computers.
Multi-Core Support: As well as SMP (multi-processor) and SMT (multi-threading/Hyper-Threading) support we have added multi-core support for future AMD and Intel CPUs. The benchmarks have been optimized to schedule the optimum number of threads on the optimum (virtual) CPU on both multi-core and Hyper-Threaded computers.
The AMD 690G really gets hurt in the memory bandwidth test because the MSI board is running at 4-6-4-12, while the NVIDIA chipsets are running at 4-4-4-12. We hope that MSI can improve the memory timing issue that we noted when we talked about the motherboard.
in the multimedia test, it’s too close to call a winner as the results were not great enough to be significantly different.
